It could be that the fan cover has become covered in grease etc on the inside of it which is restricting the fan. The fan cover is easily removed. There is a self tapping screw in each corner. Remove those and the cover should come off. The screw holes are offset, so you shouldn't be able to put the cover back upside down but be aware the cutout for the thermostat sender should be at the top.
It could also be the fan bearing seizing causing the fan to run slowly. Once the cover is removed you can check this but DO NOT run the fan for any length of time with the cover off as the heating element may overheat.

It sounds as though the fan is gummed up (a technical expression). Maybe a little fat has splashed on the fan and it's congealed. Try spraying the fan with a little WD40 (dab it off after about a minute) and run the oven until there is no lingering smell of the lubricant.

Oven keeps turning off


It could be the overheat thermostats. These age and become unstable, especially if the oven cooling fan is not running or running slowly. It could also be that the ventilation holes allowing air into the cabinet/oven have become blocked, reducing the airflow for the cooling fan.

The fan nneds replacing, as it has a tight or worn bearing/s, the fact that you turn it manually and it then goes, temporarily frees it enough to get it running, but the the only guarantted solution is to replace the fan motor.

The fan copntinues to run after oven is turned off


Most electric ovens have 2 fans. One is a fan forced fan at the back of the oven cavity that you can generally see spinning when the oven/fan forced option is selected. The other is a cavity fan which is situated between the outer skin of the oven and the oven itself. There are generally located at the top of the oven. Because the oven is a wall oven that sits in a tight cavity it cannot cool down easily. The job of the cavity fan is to cool this cavity down by blowing the hot air in the cavity out a small hole, normally in the front of the oven. When you turn the oven off this fan might operate for 5 to 10 minutes until the oven cavity cools sufficiently. If there was no cavity fan the oven and/or cupboard would overheat.

Nef B1432 (2000) not heating up properly


You possibly need to fit a new fan motor, as this will certainly cause temp variations, if it is not working properly.
If you remove the inner rear cover of bottom oven, you will see the element and the fan.Try spinning the fan by hand, it should revolve freely, and rotate on its own after spinning it by hand.
If it does not, then it needs replacing.
It is a fairly straight forward job to replace, just bear in mind that the fan is held on by a left handed nut, so to undo it , hold the fan blade, and unscrew the nut clockwise, as though you were tightening it up, and vice versa to tighten it.

You will have to remove the main rear cover of oven to access the the terminals and the fan motor.

Please rate my fixya soution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint bottom oven


Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

They are:

  1. The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
  2. The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
  3. The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry
